Candidate Helps Run Group That Says Homosexuality Can Be Cured

Thanks for this story. I'm sure it would have come up sooner or later, but sooner is better. We can all consider how little we know of the people who run for office.

Judge Backs Mayor Filner In Blocking San Diego Tourism Marketing District

Words mean what they mean. The council resolution, according to the judge, authorized the mayor to sign "an" agreement, not "the" giveaway later amended by the council to avoid their problem with Filner. Thank you judge. The proposals of the Mayor are being ignored by the hoteleros and the council members. Thank you, again, judge, for not being moved by the oligarchs. And thank you KPBS for quick and keen coverage that easily overwhelms the hype of ragged politicians and a greedy set of innkeepers.

Jacobs On Plaza De Panama Plan: 'It's Over'

Park Boulevard IS the main access to Balboa Park now, and has been ever since the city so renamed 11th St. north of City College. A parking garage in the zoo parking lot, part of it underground, would make sense. Or a garage downhill on the east side of the boulevard, near the two Navy Hospital grounds also makes sense. Either parking lot could bring people the fountain and Imax theater by way of small trams.
Cabrillo Bridge is a monument, a piece of historical architecture that people can walk across now. It should be used by emergency and park vehicles and pedestrians, only.

Week in Review: Mayoral Revelations and Medical Marijuana

The Dougchester and DeMaio? Together? Navytown will become a vast theme park. We'll all be peddling fries and sugary pop and pedicabs. It will be the best of all possible worlds, with Irwin Jacobs' offramp to the sky and money temples on the hills, and... and... how 'bout a new Sports Arena and... and... a marawalkathon every weekend... and... and... Go Chargers, how 'bout them Pads?

Cost Of Main Breaks, Water Loss Add Up For San Diego

KPBS and Newssource, these days, are proving to be the only local organizations to rise up to the challenge of delivering real reporting and protecting the public's interest at a time when most for-profits have been firing staff and picking the low-hanging fruit. A sewer story in the UT? Literally, only if it's going to be connected to the Convention Center/Charger Stadium.

Prominent US-Born Al-Qaida Cleric Killed In Yemen

There's just so little reporting on his activities
in San Diego: a mug shot at his 1997 jailing
(for what?) and a picture of the La Mesa mosque
where he counseled 9/11 bombers. It's odd that
he eluded the attention of local news hawks but
is now being said to have had numerous contacts
in San Diego.

What The Blackout Taught Us About Disaster Preparedness

In the little bit of coverage I've read there's been
little attention to the nature of the rumors that
circulated amongst people I encountered. A young
guy said it had been sabotage by the president designed
to argue the need for "green" energy. A young
couple told me that Navy friends of theirs had said
their command estimated power would be out as much as
4 days. That mild form of paranoia seemed to contrast
with the undeniable good will and even enjoyment of
the unforeseen that people were showing in my
neighborhood, where many broke out the grills and
made hamburger meals by candlelight.
I'd also say that AT&T failed. I saw lots of people with
glowing cell phones. My wife and I could not call out
and received no calls.
